Article structure is an ever-evolving process here on Bolts and Blip Wiki. This will cover the basics on writing neat articles and policies for article style.

Pages that don't meet these guidelines will be marked for cleanup to be fixed.

General

  • Articles should use proper spelling, language structure and punctuation.
    • Articles should use Canadian English.
  • Articles should be written from a neutral point of view. Pointing out features of the topic of the article is encouraged, but using sentences such as "this robot is one of the worst ones because..." is not.
  • Images should be placed with a suitable size that "fits in" with the article. For example, placing a very large image that gets in the way of the text would not be acceptable.

Categories

Categories should be clear, concise to the point when they are unambiguous and fit with previously added categories. When making new categories, try to have good judgement on what categories should exist. Categories shouldn't be added for every single aspect of an article or brief events unless it's significant.

Trivia

Trivia should and always be significant and interesting facts about the article that may not be apparent, cultural references or behind-the-scenes information.

What trivia is not:

  • Trivia is not "this is the third time an episode focuses on Blip" or "this is the fourth time the Thunderbolts have lost". and et cetera.
  • Trivia is not obvious facts.
  • Trivia is not fan-fiction.
  • Trivia is not "D-Gor returns in this episode" and et cetera.
